another one bites the crumbling pavement…Hamels on DL

My mom always used to say that with the good comes the bad. Just a fact of life.

I had little to no idea she was talking about the 2007 Phillies.

Today the Philles activated Shane Victorino from the Disabled List, put then placed pitcher Cole Hamels on it. Hamels will likely be out until September 1st. While the return of Victorino will help with the spark that the Phils need, the loss of their only consistent pitcher is a huge one

The Mighty Cole is 14-5 this year and was selected to the NL All Star team. Hamels reportedly has a mild shoulder strain.

But on the flip side, in addition to the return of Victorino, the Fightin Phils moved into a tie for the lead in the NL Wild Card and The Force That is Chase is eyeing up a Monday return, the start of a big series against the division leading Mets.
